The Jakarta Fashion Hub (JFH), a collaborative space that combines fashion and creativity for fashion enthusiasts, officially opened on Tuesday (18/8/2020). The JFH is a creative space for fashion enthusiasts and unlocks the potential of the domestic fashion, textile, and creative industries.
The Jakarta Fashion Hub is an initiative by integrated viscose-rayon fiber manufacturer Asia Pacific Rayon (APR) with the vision to provide a collaborative space for fashion enthusiasts to formulate concepts, design products and create original works utilizing the hub’s facilities.
The JFH, located in the Tanoto Foundation Building in downtown Jakarta, includes co-working spaces, workshops, photo studios, and a mini store for designers who collaborate with APR.
The Fashion Hub also offers a wide selection of fabric materials and designs, including APR’s own sustainably produced viscose-rayon fiber.
“We hope that the Jakarta Fashion Hub can become a platform for fashion enthusiasts, students, designers, and fashion business owners to continue to explore their potential in creating original Indonesian fashion trademarks and go global, in line with President Joko Widodo’s vision of encouraging #BanggaBuatanIndonesia,” said Asia Pacific Rayon Director Basrie Kamba.
“We believe the Fashion Hub will also help sustain the textile and fashion sectors as a driving force for the development of a creative domestic sector, while also supporting the downstream textile industry amid the pandemic”, he said.
Didiet Maulana, Designer and Owner of IKAT Indonesia, welcomed the launch of the Jakarta Fashion Hub as a platform to accommodate young Indonesians aspiring to channel their passion in fashion.
“Hopefully, the Jakarta Fashion Hub can serve as a gathering place for fashion designers and communities to innovate and support industry development,” said Didiet.
In light of the current pandemic, the Jakarta Fashion Hub will implement health protocols to ensure the safety and comfort of visitors. All visitors will have their temperature checked, and will be required to wear facemasks and maintain a safe distance. Hand sanitizers are provided in several spots in the center.
